Tips and tricks: using filters

iCaching has a pretty powerfull filtering mechanism. You can do a single filter action by pressing the magnifier icon in the toolbar, but you can also save a filter as a so called ‘Smart Folder’. The filter dialog uses a standard Apple interface element to create the filters, but apparently not all users are familiair […]

Just re-uploaded version 4.4

After a three week struggle with a technical issue concerning App Store approval, I just resubmitted version 4.4 for review. So when the guys of the review team don’t have another surprise, this update can be available soon. This release is mainly a bugfix release. We managed to solve a bug in the importroutines for […]

Logging

It’s been too long since I wrote a post on the site. So you deserve a little update on the development of iCaching. We’ve been investigating a bug some users have when downloading pocketqueries through the API. we couldn’t reproduce the issue on the development machines, so it was like searching blindfolded. But the first […]

New features for next release

As explaned in the previous post, the next version of iCaching focusses on improving the underlaying code of import and export routines. But that delivers some new features too: – You’ll get speed improvements during these background operations. – You can import bigger GPX-files without crashes. – All background operations are cancelable. And beside that, […]

Time for an update

It’s about time for an update on our work on iCaching. We’re still busy with the big refactoring of the applicationcode. Last week we’ve been rewriting big parts of the import-routines. There are two main reasons for this: – bugfixing (unfortunately some users are reporting crashes after import of pocketQueries) – better readable and extendable […]

iCaching 4.25 released

iCaching 4.25 is mostly a bug-solving-release. However, in version 4.25 we redesigned the usernote on the Info tab. Scrolling inside the note is improved and it is more easy on the eye. And besides: the old note wasn’t sharp in the upcoming OS X 10.9 Mavericks. So iCaching is fully prepared for 10.9 now.

Cleanup the code

During the summer holidays we did a little programming on iCaching. Instead of adding new features, we focussed on cleaning up the codebase. Improve, cleanup and optimalization of the code. The result is a more stable and a little faster iCaching. And more room for adding new features in the future. Still wanting to add […]

New website

Alongside the new version of iCaching, we also release our new site. The new site contains information about all the new features of iCaching. The new site is fully responsive, so you can enjoy it on your desktop, but also on your iPad or smartphone. We have more screenshots than ever, so you get a […]

iCaching version 4.0 released!

Finally it’s there: iCaching 4.0 with API support! There were moments even we thought this wouldn’t happen 🙂 You’ll find a complete revamped Pocketquery window, with downloads as file or through the API. (Premium users only) Through the API you can also query the Geocaching.com database directly. Define your criteria and download those caches. Just […]

API-support on the horizon (part III)

For those wondering whether iCaching 4.0 is still on its way, there is good news: it is nearing completion. Translations are almost done, the help files are ready and we’re ironing out the last bugs. It is also send to groundspeak for approval of the API use. So we ask for a little patience… In […]
